HBO Documentary Films: OPEN YOUR EYES

Overview: Directed by Irene Taylor Brodsky (HBO’s THE FINAL INCH), this documentary follows Manisara and Durga, an aging couple from the remote Himalayan Mountains of Nepal, as they embark on a transformative odyssey to regain the sight they lost over the years by undergoing a life-changing procedure.

But Manisara is...

Vice Principals Series Premiere: “The Principal”

Vice Principals Series Premiere: “The Principal”

  Television history has given us some beautiful and unforgettable partnerships. From Matt Damon and Ben Affleck to Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld but one pairing, which is perhaps a little under the radar, is that of Danny McBride and Jody Hill. They have been collaborating with each other for many years and have gained a reputation for creating larger than life, controversial characters and giving dark themes a comedic twist. Eastbound and Down, which has now come to an end, is the most renowned thing that McBride and Hill have worked on together and of course, their return to HBO with their new show Vice Principals has echoes of...

THE NIGHT OF: “Part II: Subtle Beast” Review

  In this brutal, tight limited series we are being taken through the steps of the criminal justice system and as we watch are not we beginning to ask if it works properly? As it plays out we look at all the jobs required, all the angles that need to be analyzed for any one given crime, all the dancing around and carefully placed words. Some play by rules and others will play on the flexibility of those rules and still others will just break them – all in the name of justice. This episode observes that dance and two of the ways it is interpreted as the justice for one life and the fate of another hang in the balance. Quick...

THE DEUCE Is Building A Cast

THE DEUCE Is Building A Cast

The following is the culmination of a few reports over the past month or so regarding casting of the latest from David Simon, THE DEUCE. If you need to get up to speed on this show already starring James Franco and Maggie Gyllenhaal we offer the brief remainder below and a link to our postings. It follows the story of the legalization and subsequent rise of the porn industry in New York’s Times Square from the early 1970s through the mid-1980s, exploring the rough-and-tumble world that existed there until the rise of HIV, the violence of the cocaine epidemic, and the renewed real estate market ended the bawdy turbulence. The show’s title...

BIG LOVE/GETTING ON Team Still Working With HBO

BIG LOVE/GETTING ON Team Still Working With HBO

The creative team of Mark V. Olsen and Will Scheffer, who were behind the acclaimed hour series BIG LOVE and the stateside adaption of British import GETTING ON have let us know that they are still working with HBO. But, just what is next from them would be the big question. Is it going to be another big drama like the story of Bill Hendrickson and his three sister-wives? Or will they once again go with a smaller show of quality and humor like the one that took place at the Billy Barnes Unit? Or how about the French comedy we reported they were developing back in September of 2014? Actually, their latest plans will be another drama series,...

VICE PRINCIPALS Only Planned For Two Seasons

VICE PRINCIPALS Only Planned For Two Seasons

As HBO is about to launch the latest series from the team of Danny McBride and Jody Hill note that its endgame is already in sight. That’s right the powers to be on the show have stated upfront that VICE PRINCIPALS will last only two seasons. The news came when McBride, who plays Vice Principal Neal Gamby along Walton Goggins as rival Vice Principal Lee Russell, made the announcement at the Los Angeles premiere of the show. In McBride’s own words he said – “The whole series is only 18 episodes and that’s it. We just wanted to make a really long movie. It’s one school year and a complete story. This was an old screenplay...

Movie Review: Straight Outta Compton

Movie Review: Straight Outta Compton

Straight Outta Compton follows the same path as most other movies about famous musicians, coming from nothing to creating something that permanently changes our culture. What makes it different, and in this case, so much more exciting is that we see the growing pains of those changes, witnessing just how much music can affect the day to day lives of those who couldn’t find an outlet for pent-up frustration at a system that didn’t (and one could say still doesn’t) care about them. Usually we can see how the music is a reflection of the artist’s inner turmoil, reflecting on themselves and how the sacrifices they made in pursuing their...

Game of Thrones: Scene of the Season (Season 6)

Winter is finally here. And for all of us Game of Thrones fans, the long wait begins. Until next spring, we’ll all have to content ourselves with various tidbits of information about the HBO show where ever possible. The awesome folks at HBOWatch have decided to pick their personal favorite scenes of season six and will share them with you. Beware, this post is full of spoilers! The Tower of Joy by Eleonora Iafano My personal favorite was the Tower of Joy flashback and segues into the King in the North scene. This was one of the most highly anticipated scenes of season six, and for good reason. For those that have read the books, you know...

CTV to air Game of Thrones Entire First Season!

CTV to air Game of Thrones Entire First Season!

  What would the Old and the New Gods think of this new development?! Up here, or ‘North of the Wall’ as I like to jokingly put it, Canada’s own CTV network will start airing the entire first season of Game of Thrones starting in August. Well, for those that have already seen the entire six season, this really isn’t news for you. However, for the folks up in Canada who don’t have access to HBO Go or don’ subscribe to HBO, this is HUGE! In fact, it’s extremely exciting.    Remember, not everyone is tech savvy or can afford tablets to stream HBO Go or can subscribe to HBO if you order cable. This is fantastic because...

THE NIGHT OF Series Premiere – Review

THE NIGHT OF Series Premiere – Review

We already know, due to the fact that this debut episode became available early, that critics have raved THE NIGHT OF’s launch. For example, Rotten Tomatoes gives it a 96% and Variety states it “is compulsively watchable and extraordinarily rewarding, a brilliant and addictive mystery that inspires the viewer to go back and watch the same scenes again, looking for subtler character beats and hidden clues.”  Quite a few watched it to favorable results, as far as HBO is concerned. With its early debut online the premiere episode saw 1.5 million viewers and its channel debut on 07.10 tallied another 1.3 million across three back-to-back...

One Speculation On Game of Thrones Season Seven

One Speculation On Game of Thrones Season Seven

Season Six is over…and MAN!!!!! There were so many twists and turns, revelations and betrayals that it was like riding a very long rollercoaster. We shouted for joy when our heroes finally came out on top and cursed the very day that our enemies were able to escape proper justice. So, the question begs, what will happen in Season Seven? With a principal cast of main characters and many supporting ones, who will rise and who will fall? The four main characters that I would like to make predictions for are Arya, Tyrion, Jon and Lady Olenna. Arya Stark  Arya Stark has cut a couple of names of her list: Meryn Trant and most recently,...

Matthew McConaughey to Make True Detective Return?

Matthew McConaughey to Make True Detective Return?

  Matthew McConaughey could make a sensational return to Golden Globe and Emmy nominated show True Detective. McConaughey previously played fan favorite philosophical detective Rustin Cohle alongside Woody Harrelson in the first season of the hit HBO series. Speaking on The Rich Eisen Show, when asked whether he would be open to reprising his role as Rust Cohle, McConaughey conceded; “Yeah, I would. I miss Rust Cohle man. I miss watching him on Sunday nights”. His characterization is arguably one of the main reasons for True Detective‘s initial success and popularity. From his philosophical musings, sharped-tongued...
